Climate models use broad definitions of vegetation-based biophysical parameters that may not represent the continentallyspecific nature of Australian vegetation well. This paper explores the impact on the January simulation of climate over Australia of this common simplification. First, we map the Australian distribution of vegetation types onto the default classification used in one high-resolution climate model. Second, through a search of the literature we chose replacement values for the… CONTINUE READING
